Burglary Fir Street Southport

Police are reminding residents to always lock their homes and vehicles properly at night after a number of burglaries and thefts.

Two houses in Fir Street, Southport, were broken into overnight (Sunday 2nd November 2014).

Thieves forced their way into a house in Fir Street via the rear of the property, and stole a number of items while the owners were asleep.

Local police are investigating the crime and call upon people to take more time to secure their property and deter thieves.

It is vital that we all do everything we can to stop these people in their tracks.

“It doesn’t take long to double-check you’ve locked up your house or car properly and it could save you the hours of stress and upset that come with being burgled.”

Simple steps to deter burglars and car thieves, include:

Lock front and back doors when you are elsewhere in the house or in your back garden

Make sure you lock UPVC doors properly by lifting the handle and turning the key

Make use of your burglar alarm when you are going out or to bed at night

Keep valuables such as laptops, phones and handbags out of sight and away from windows where someone peering in can spot them

Don’t leave valuables on display in your vehicle – take them with you or, if you can’t, at least put them out of sight in the boot

Always lock your vehicle, even if only leaving it unattended for a few moments, and activate the alarm.
